Finding Nemo (2003)
Marlin: Now it's my turn. I'm thinking of something dark and mysterious. It's a fish we don't know. If we ask it directions, it could ingest us and spit out our bones.
Dory: What is it with men and asking for directions?
Marlin: I don't want to play the gender card right now. You want to play a card, let's play the "let's not die" card.

[Marlin and Dory are racing through the jellyfish forest. Marlin starts talking to himself]
Marlin: So, we're cheating death now, that's what we're doing, and we're having fun at the same time, I can do this, just be careful...
Dory: Yeah, careful I don't make you cry when I win!
Marlin: Oh, I don't think so!
Dory: Ha, ha, ha, ha! Woo! Give it up old man, you can't fight evolution, I was built for speed.
Marlin: The question is Dory, are you hungry?
Dory: Hungry?
Marlin: Yeah. 'Cause you're about to eat my bubbles!

Dory: Hey, Mr. Grumpy Gills. When life gets you down do you know what you've gotta do?
Marlin: No, I don't know what to do.
Dory: [singing] Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming. What do we do? We swim, swim.
Marlin: Dory, no singing.
Dory: [continuing] Ha, ha, ha, ha, ho. I love to swim. When you WANT to swim you want to swim.
Marlin: Now I'm stuck with that song... Now it's in my head!
Dory: Sorry.

Dory: I saw a boat.
Marlin: Where? Which way?
Dory: It went... this way. It went this way! Follow me!
[few seconds later, she starts zig-zagging in front of him and glancing back]
Dory: Would you quit it? What, the ocean isn't big enough for you or something like that? You got a problem? Huh? Do ya, do ya, do ya? You wanna piece of me? Yeah, yeah! Ooh, I'm scared now! What?
Marlin: Wait a minute...
Dory: Stop following me, okay?
Marlin: What are you talking about? You're showing which way the boat went!
Dory: A boat? Hey, I've seen a boat. It passed by not too long ago. It went... this way. It went this way! Follow me!
Marlin: Wait a minute, wait a minute! What is going on? You already told me which way the boat was going!
Dory: I did? Oh, no...

Marlin: Tell me, Dory, do you see anything?
Dory: Yeah, I see a light.
Marlin: A light?
Dory: Yeah. I see a light.
Marlin: Yeah, I see it too.
Dory: Hey, Conscience, am I dead?
Marlin: No, no. I see it, too.
[they swim up to the light]
Marlin: What is it?
Dory: It's so... *pretty*.
Marlin: [mesmerized] I... I'm feeling... happy, which is a big deal... for me.
Dory: I want to touch it...
[she does; the light bobs quickly away]
Dory: Oh!
Marlin: Hey, come back. Come on back here. I'm gonna get ya.
Dory: Come here.
Marlin: [singing] I'm gonna swim with you...
Dory: I'm gonna get ya. I'm gonna get ya.
Marlin: [singing] I'm gonna be your best friend...
[a big scary fish looms into view]
Marlin: ...Good feeling's gone.
Marlin, Dory: AHH!

Marlin: I can't read human.
Dory: Then we need to find a fish that can read this. Hey, look! Sharks!

Marlin: [Surrounded by jellyfish] This is bad, Dory. Very bad.
Dory: [Bouncing on top of a jellyfish] Hey, watch this. Boing! Boing!...
Marlin: Dory!
Dory: You can't catch me!
Marlin: Dory, don't bounce on the tops! They will... not sting you. The tops don't sting you! That's it!
Dory: Two in a row. Beat that.
Marlin: Dory, listen to me. We're going to play a game.
Dory: A game?
Marlin: Yeah, a game.
Dory: I love games! Pick me!
Marlin: We're gonna race. First one out of the jellyfish wins.
Dory: Out, got it!
Marlin: Rules, rules! You can't touch the tentacles, only the tops...
Dory: Something about tentacles, got it.
Marlin: No, it's not something about them, it's all about them.
Dory: On your mark, get set, go!
Marlin: Wait, Dory!

Dory: This is the Ocean, silly, we're not the only two in here.

Marlin: [inside the whale as it starts to swallow] What's going on?
Dory: I'll ask. Whaaaa...
Marlin: No, no more whale! You can't speak whale!
Dory: Yes I can!
Marlin: No, you can't! You think you can do these things, but you can't, Nemo!

Marlin: I can't afford any more delays and you're one of those fish that causes delays. Sometimes it's a good thing. There's a whole group of fish . They're delay fish.
Dory: You mean...
[whimpers]
Dory: . You mean you don't like me?
Marlin: No, of course I like you. It's because I like you I don't want to be with you. It's a complicated emotion.

Nemo: Are you all right?
Dory: [exasperated] I don't know where I am... I don't know what's going on. I think I lost somebody but I, I can't remember... and I can't remember...
Nemo: It's OK, it's OK. I'm looking for somebody too. Hey, we can look together.
Dory: I'm Dory.
Nemo: I'm Nemo.
Dory: Nemo?... that's a nice name...

Dory: [in her sleep] Hey, careful with that hammer...

School of Fish: Hey, hey! You like impressions?
Dory: Mmm-hmm.
School of Fish: Okay, just like in rehearsal, gentlemen.
[School takes form of swordfish]
School of Fish: So, what are we? Take a guess.
Dory: Oh, oh, I've seen one of those.
School of Fish: I'm a fish with a nose like a *sword*.
Dory: Wait, wait, umm...
Marlin: It's a swordfish!
School of Fish: Hey, clown boy! Let the lady guess.
[Takes form of lobster]
School of Fish: Where's the butter?
Dory: Ooh! It's on the tip of my tongue...
Marlin: [Coughing] Lobster!
School of Fish: Saw that.
Marlin: What?
School of Fish: [Takes form of octopus] Lots of legs, swims in the ocean.
Dory: Clam!
School of Fish: Close enough.
[Takes form of pirate ship]
School of Fish: Oh, it's a whale of a tale, I'll tell you, lad...
Dory: Oh, they're good.

Marlin: What did it say? What did the mask say?
Dory: P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney.
[gasps]
Dory: I remembered what it said! I usually forget things, but I remembered it that time! P. Sherman, 4...
Marlin: Wait! What does that mean?
Dory: I don't know. But who cares! Ha ha! I remembered! P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney. I remembered it again!

[looking at the mines]
Dory: Hey, look, balloons. It is a party.
Bruce: Mind your distance, though. Those balloons can be a bit dodgy. You wouldn't want one of them to pop.

Dory: I saw a boat.
Marlin: You did?
Dory: Yeah, it went by not too long ago. Follow me.
[few seconds later]
Dory: Would you quit it? What, the ocean isnt big enough for you or something like that? You got a problem? Huh? Do ya, do ya, do ya? You wanna piece of me? Yeah, yeah! Ooh, I'm scared now! What?
Marlin: What? You said you saw a boat.
Dory: A boat?
Marlin: YES.
Dory: Hey, I've seen a boat. It went by not too long ago. It went... this way. It went this way.
Marlin: Wait a minute, you already told me which way the boat went.
Dory: I did? Oh, no...

Dory: How about we play a game?
Marlin: All right.
Dory: Okay, I'm thinking of something orange, and it's small...
Marlin: It's me.
Dory: Right!
[Later]
Dory: I'm thinking of something orange and small...
Marlin: Me again.
Dory: All right, Mr. Smartypants...
[Later]
Dory: ... It's orange and small, and has stripes...
Marlin: Me, and the next one - just a guess - me.
Dory: Okay, that's just scary.

School of Fish: Oh and one more thing: when you come to this trench, swim through it, not over it.
Dory: Trench. Through it, not over. I'll remember.
[swimming to catch up with Marlin]
Dory: Hey wait up there's something I gotta tell you.
[sees the trench]
Dory: Woah. Nice trench.

Dory: I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy. Come on, Squishy! Come on, little Squishy.
[baby talk, the jellyfish stings her]
Dory: Ow! Bad Squishy, bad Squishy!

Dory: [about the humpback whale] Maybe he only speaks whale.
[slowly and deeply, imitating the whale]
Dory: Mooo... Weeee neeeed...
Marlin: Dory?
Dory: ...tooo fiiind hiiis sooon.
Marlin: What are you doing? Are you sure you speak whale?
Dory: Caaaan yoooou giive uuuus direeeeectioooons?
Marlin: Dory! Heaven knows what you're saying! See, he's swimming away.
Dory: Cooome baaaaack.
Marlin: He's not coming back. You offended him.
Dory: Maybe a different dialect. Mmmmoooooowaaaaah...
Marlin: Dory! This is not whale. You're speaking like, upset stomach.
Dory: Maybe I should try humpback.
Marlin: No, don't try humpback.
Dory: Woooooo! Woooooo!
Marlin: Okay, now you really do sound sick.
Dory: Maybe louder. Rah! Rah!
Marlin: Don't do that!
Dory: Too much orca. Did it sound a little orca-ish to you?
Marlin: It doesn't sound orca. It sounds like nothing I've ever heard!

Dory: No. No, you can't... Stop! Please don't go away. Please? No one's ever stuck with me for so long before. And if you leave... if you leave... I just, I remember things better with you. I do, look. P. Sherman, forty-two... forty-two... I remember it, I do. It's there, I know it is, because when I look at you, I can feel it. And-and I look at you, and I... and I'm home. Please... I don't want that to go away. I don't want to forget.
Marlin: I'm sorry, Dory. But I... do.

Dory: Have you seen an orange fish swim by? It looks just like him.
[points to Nemo]
Nemo: But bigger!
Crab: Yeah, I saw him, Bluey. But I'm not telling you where he went, and there's no way you're gonna make me!
[Dory gives Crab an angry glare, then holds him out of water for the seagulls to see]
Seagulls: Mine!
Crab: AHH! ALL RIGHT! I'll talk! I'LL TALK! He went to the fishing grounds! Aaah!
Seagulls: Mine? Mine. Mine!

Dory: [sees a very small baby jellyfish] I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy Come on, Squishy Come on, little Squishy...
[makes baby talk and slowly touches the jellyfish, getting shocked]
Dory: [pulling her fin away quickly] Ow! Bad squishy, bad squishy!

Dory: [dreaming] Uhhh... the sea monkeys have my money... yes, I'm a natural blue...

Marlin: [Dory and Marlin are in pitch darkness looking for the mask] Dory, do you see anything?
Dory: Ahh! Something's got me!
Marlin: That's just me. I'm sorry.
Dory: Who's that?
Marlin: [exasperated] Who's that? Who else would it be? It's me!
Dory: Are... are you my conscience?
Marlin: [sighs] Yes, I'm your conscience. We haven't spoken for a while. How are you?
Dory: Eh, can't complain.
Marlin: Good. Now, Dory, do you see anything?
Dory: [angler fish's light approaches] Yes, I see... a light. Hey, conscience, am I dead?
Marlin: No, I see it too.

[after whale blows Marlin and Dory out]
Marlin: THANK-YOU-SIIIIRRRRR!
Dory: Wow. I wish I could speak whale...

Bruce: So, what's a couple of bites like you doing out so late?
Marlin: Nothing, we're not doing anything, we're not even out.
Bruce: Great! Then how would you little morsels like to come to a little - a little get-together I'm having?
Dory: You mean like a party?
Bruce: Yeah, that's it, a party! What do you say?
Dory: Oh, I love parties! That sounds like fun.
Marlin: Parties are fun, and it's tempting, but we really have to...
Bruce: [Takes Dory and Marlin by the fin] Aw, come on. I insist.
Marlin: [Nervous] Okay, that's all that matters.

Dory: [At the entrance to the trench] Come on, let's go.
Marlin: No, no, no! Bad trench, bad trench! Come on, we're swimming over this thing.
Dory: Whoa, partner. Little red flag going up. Something tells me we should go through it, not over it.
Marlin: Are you even looking at this thing? It's got death written all over it!
Dory: I'm sorry, but I really, really, really think we should go through it.
Marlin: And I'm really, really done talking about this. Over we go.
Dory: Come on, trust me on this one.
Marlin: Trust you?
Dory: Yes, trust. It's what friends do.
Marlin: Look, something shiny!
Dory: Where?
Marlin: Oh, it just swam over the trench! Come on, we'll follow it. Let's go.
Dory: Okay.

Marlin: Wait a minute! You can read?
Dory: I can read? That's right, I can READ!

[Marlin and Dory are each pulling on the mask; it snaps and hits Dory in the face]
Dory: Ow!
Marlin: Oh, I'm really sorry. Are you okay?
Dory: Ow, ow, ow!
Marlin: I'm so sorry.
Dory: You really clocked me there. Am I bleeding?
[a wisp of blood floats from Dory's nose]
Marlin: Ohh!
Dory: Ow. Ow. Ow.
Bruce: Dory, are you okay...
[Sniffs the blood; his eyes turn black]
Bruce: Oh, oh, that's good...
Chum, Anchor: INTERVENTION!

Dory: Hi. I'm Dory.
Anchor, Chum, Bruce: Hello, Dory.
Dory: And, uh, well... well, I don't think I've ever eaten a fish.
[the sharks applaud]
Chum: Wow, that's incredible!
Bruce: Good on ya, mate!
Dory: Whew. Glad I got that off my chest.

Dory: Well, let's just ask someone for directions.
Marlin: Who do you want to ask, the *speck*? There's no one here!

Nemo: Are you all right?
Dory: [exasperated] I don't know where I am... I don't know what's going on. I think I lost somebody but I, I can't remember... and I can't remember...
Nemo: It's OK, it's OK. I'm looking for somebody too. Hey, We can look together.
Dory: I'm Dory.
Nemo: I'm Nemo.
Dory: Nemo?... that's a nice name...

Marlin: The water's going down. It's-it's-it's going down!
Dory: Hmm. Are you sure about that?
Marlin: Look! Already it's half-empty.
Dory: Hmm... I'd say it's half-full.
Marlin: Stop that! It's half-empty!

Dory: "P.Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney." I remembered it. I bet I could even remember it again..."P.Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney." I did it again.

Marlin: How do you know something bad isn't gonna happen?
Dory: I don't!

Dory: DUCK!
Marlin: [looks up] That's not a duck, it's a... PELICAN!

Dory: Excuse me? Whoo-hoo! Little fella? Hello! Don't be rude. Say hi.
Marlin: Ha. Hello.
Dory: His son Bingo...
Marlin: Nemo.
Dory: ...Nemo was taken to, um...
Marlin: Sydney
Dory: ...Sydney, yeah. And it's really, really important that we get there as fast as we can, so can you help us out? Come on, little fella. Come on.
Marlin: Dory? I'm a little fella. I don't think that's a little fella.

[the whale groans]
Dory: Okay, that one was a little tougher. He either said we should "go to the back of the throat", or he "wants a root beer float".

Dory: [reading a door] Hey, look. "Esc-a-pay". I wonder what that means? That's funny, it's spelled just like the word "escape."

Marlin: We did it, we did it oh, yeah, yeah, yeah! No eating here tonight, Woo!
Marlin, Dory: Eating here tonight!
Dory: No, no, no eating here tonight, you're on a diet!

Marlin: He's my son, he was taken by these divers...
Dory: Oh my, you poor fish.
Chum: Humans! Think they own everything.
Anchor: Probably American!

Bruce: Hello.
[Marlin gasps, Dory swims up]
Dory: Well, hi!
Bruce: Name's Bruce.
[offers fin, Marlin backs up]
Bruce: It's all right. I understand.
[turns away]
Bruce: Why trust a shark, right?
[quickly returns and snaps at Marlin and Dory, then laughs]

[as Bruce bangs against the door of the sunken ship]
Dory: Who is it?
Marlin: Dory, help me find a way out!
Dory: [to Bruce] Sorry. Could you come back later? We're trying to escape.

Marlin: I promised I'd never let anything happen to him.
Dory: Hmm. That's a funny thing to promise.
Marlin: What?
Dory: Well, you can't never let anything happen to him. Then nothing would ever happen to him. Not much fun for little Harpo.

Dory: Hey, what's wrong?
Marlin: What's wrong? While they're busy doing their little impressions, I'm miles from home with a fish who can't even remember her name.
Dory: Boy, I bet that's frustrating.
Marlin: Meanwhile, my son is missing.
Dory: Your son Chico?
Marlin: Nemo.
Dory: Right. Got it.
Marlin: But it doesn't matter, because no one in this entire ocean is going to help me.
Dory: Well, I'm helping you.

Crush: Alright, we're here, dudes! Get ready! Your exit's comin' up, man!
Marlin: Where? I don't see it.
Dory: There! I see it! I see it!
Marlin: You mean the swirling vortex of terror?
Crush: That's it, dude!

[Dory is trying to read the pipe that says "Sydney Water Treatment"]
Dory: Si... side... syd... nay... Sydney!
[she hears a "P. Sherman 42 Wallaby Way Sydney" flashback in her head, and sees a rapid succession of memories from earlier in the film]
Dory: [suddenly realizing] Aah! Nemo!

Marlin: I can't make out these markings.
Dory: Then we need to find a fish that can read this. Hey, look! Sharks!

Marlin: It's just as well. He might be hungry.
Dory: Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish. They eat krill.
Krill: Swim away!
Dory: Oh look! Krill!

[Marlin and Dory are arguing about whether or not they should go over the trench]
Dory: Come on, trust me on this one.
Marlin: Trust you?
Dory: Yes, trust, it's what friends do.

Dory: I suffer from short-term memory loss. It runs in my family... At least I think it does... hm. Where *are* they?

Bruce: Today's meeting is Step 5: Bring a fish friend. Everyone brought a fish friend?
Anchor: Got mine.
[a small fish shivering with fear]
Dory: Hi there!
Bruce: What about you, Chum?
Chum: Oh... um... I seem to have misplaced my, um... friend.
[a fish skeleton peeks from Chum's teeth; Chum quickly sucks it back in]
Bruce: That's all right, mate. I had a feeling this would be a hard step. You can help yourself to one of my friends.
Chum: [Taking Marlin] Thanks mate. A little chum for Chum, eh?

Dory: P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney! You asked me where I'm going? OK, I'll tell you: P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney! That's where I'm going!

Marlin: The water is half empty!
Dory: Hmmm. I'd say it's half full.

[Gerald the pelican seems to be choking]
Nigel: [casually] Alright Gerald, what is it? Fish got your tongue?
[Gerald opens his mouth to show this is indeed the case]
Dory, Marlin: Aaaaahh!
Nigel: Love a duck!

Marlin: [introduction to the main menu of the first disc of the DVD] Where is it? Where is it?
[the menu appears]
Dory: Oh there's the menu, I knew it was around here somewhere.
Marlin: Well.
[Marlin and Dory do not appear onscreen during this menu exchange]
Marlin: [beginning of menu loop; Marlin talks to the viewer at home] Okay, you've got a lot of choices here. You can watch just the movie *without* the commentary...
Dory: [interrupting] Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! I'm so excited! I've always wanted to see... "The Little Mermaid"!
Marlin: Good. Well this is "Finding Nemo".
Dory: Oh, well that sounds nice, too. Maybe we should watch *that* one.
Marlin: We're watching that one! This is "Finding Nemo"!
Dory: [sounding flattered] Oh you shouldn't have switched just for me!
Marlin: Unbelievable...
[pause]
Dory: I've always wanted to be in a film.
Marlin: You were in a film. THIS one. "Finding Nemo"!
Dory: No way! I'd remember that.
[laughs strangely]
Dory: Seriously...
Marlin: No you wouldn't...
Dory: Yes I would.
[excited inhalation sigh]
Dory: Being in a film would be so glamorous!
Marlin: [nonplussed] Really?
Dory: Oh my. Fabulous! Where's my trailer? I need water!
Marlin: Dory...
Dory: Fill my trailer with water!
Marlin: Something's wrong with you.
[pause]
Dory: Just keep watching, just keep watching, just keep watching watching watching. Watching, watching, watching...
[continues singing in this manner while Marlin speaks]
Marlin: You got a lot of choices here. Or you don't even have to watch *this* movie. Take the disc out, and I'll stop talking.
[Dory is still singing]
Marlin: There are no wrong choices. The only wrong choice is to sit there like you're doing.
[Dory is still singing]
Marlin: There are a lot of choices here, just pick one! Pick one so we can start! Please! All of us got nothing to do! Hit a choice, will ya?
Dory: [still singing] Hoo hoo, hoo hoo! Keep on watching...

Mr. Ray: [introduction to the Bonus Features menu of the first disc of the DVD; Mr. Ray is singing] Let's make a selection, a selection, a selection. Let's make a selection on the D-V-D! Ohhhhh! Pick something.
Nemo: [looks down at the reef] Cool!
Mr. Ray: [all characters are off-screen past this point] Welcome explorers! So much to see, so much to learn. Let's go!
[long pause]
Mr. Ray: Okay, optical orbits up front, and let's pick a button.
Dory: Uh! I'd like to see it with the commentary!
Marlin: It's not up to you.
Dory: Well, they might listen to me; I speak mammal. Choose the commentary!
Marlin: Unbelievable...
Mr. Ray: Sooo... Moving along!
[pause]
Mr. Ray: All scientific exploration is an act of discovery, so pick a button and discover what happens.
Bruce: [Bruce's Easter egg narration on the same menu] Hullo. My name is Bruce. I promise to watch all the making-of features, listen to the complete audio-visual commentary, and search diligently for Easter Eggs. On my honor, so help me.

Dory: Just keep swimming!

Marlin: Dory there's no way out!
[Bruce bangs on the door]
Dory: Hello?
Marlin: Dory, help me find a way out!
Dory: Sorry, can't help you, trying to escape!
Marlin: Dory, what are we going to do?
Dory: Hey look here, "es-ca-pe!" Its funny, it's spelled just like the word escape...

Dory: [Dory reading while she and Marlin are trying to get away from Bruce] Es... Es-cap-e. Funny it's spelled just like the word escape.

Marlin: I promised him I'd never let anything happen to him.
Dory: Hm. That's a funny thing to promise.
Marlin: What?
Dory: Well, you can't let anything happen to him, then nothing would ever happen to him.

Dory: Just keep swimming, just keep swimming...
[repeated line]

Dory: P Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney.
[repeated line]


Finding Dory (2016)
[from trailer]
Dory: Don't cry, mommy... Don't cry...

[from trailer]
Dory: I remember something important!
Marlin: Something important? What?
Dory: Something about a clam or...?
Marlin: No.
Dory: No, an oyster.
Marlin: No.
Dory: Mollusk?
Marlin: No.
Dory: Something?
Marlin: No.
Dory: I don't... know...
Marlin: No clam.

Dory: [from trailer]
[to a bunch of dead fish]
Dory: I'm sorry. I gotta blink. How do you hold your eyes open that long?

Dory: For a guy with three hearts, you are not very nice.

[last lines]
Marlin: It really is quite a view.
Dory: Yup. Unforgettable.

Hank: You know something? I have no idea why you are doing this.
Dory: What do you mean?
Hank: It seems like a lot of trouble to find some more fish. If I had short term memory loss, I would just swim off into the blue and forget everything.
Dory: I don't wanna do that. I want my family.
Hank: I mean, kid, I don't wanna have anyone to worry about. You are lucky. No Memories, no problems.

Dory: Sigourney Weaver is going to help us!

Dory: A friend of mine, her name's Sigourney, once told me that all it takes is three simple steps: rescue, rehabilitation, and um... one other thing?
Group of Cheering Fish: Release!
[cheer with joy]

Dory: Can you get me across the ocean?
Marlin: No. But I know a guy.

Dory: I remember it like it was yesterday. Of course, I don't really remember yesterday all that well.

Dory: What is so great about plans? I never had a plan! Did I plan to lose my parents? No. Did I plan to find Marlin? No. Did you and I plan to meet? Well, I don't think we did and that's because the best things happen by chance because that's life and that's you being with me out in the ocean not safe in some stupid glass box.

Dory: [Reading from the map] Kids zone!
Hank: No, no kids! Kids grab things, and I'm not losing another tentacle for you.
Dory: You lost a tentacle? Well, then, you're not an octopus; you're a septopus. I may not remember but I can count.

Bailey: Can you please keep it down over there? My head hurts.
Dory: Who's that?
Destiny: [whispering] That's my neighbor Bailey. He was brought in with a head injury.
Bailey: I know you're talking about me, Destiny!
Destiny: [blocking Bailey's view with her flipper] He thinks he can't use his echolocation but I've overheard the doctors talking.
Bailey: I'm right here.
Destiny: There's not a thing wrong with him!
Bailey: I hear every word you're saying about me.
Dory: What's echolocation?
Destiny: Well Bailey's head is supposed to put out a call, and the echo helps him find objects far away.
[Turns to face Bailey]
Destiny: Oh, but APPARENTLY, he's still HEALING.
Bailey: Now I know you're talking about me.

Jenny: Okay, okay, we'll pretend to be the other kids now. Hi Dory!
Charlie: Ahoy there! Do you wanna play Hide and Seek?
Young Dory: Okay! I love games.
Charlie: We'll hide and you count and come find us.
Young Dory: Okay, Daddy.
Charlie: No, no. Not "Daddy." I'm the nice fish who wants to be your friend, okay?
Young Dory: Okay, Daddy.

Young Dory: What if I forget you? Would you ever forget me?

Young Dory: I like sand. Sand is squishy.

[first lines]
Young Dory: Hi. I'm Dory. I suffer from short-term re-mem-bery loss.

Young Dory: [sees purple shells, determined] Mommy loves purple shells.


Exploring the Reef (2003) (V)
Jean-Michel Cousteau: [referring to different kinds of gastropods] Even the lovely Spanish Dancer...
Marlin: Did someone say "dancing"?
[disco begins]
Marlin: Ah, ah, ooh-ooh!
[Dory and Nemo appear onscreen dancing]
Marlin: Clear the reef, Papa's back in town! Ooh!
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Stop! Let me talk!
[angry]
Jean-Michel Cousteau: The ocean, where you live, evaporates to form clouds. The clouds produce snow, the snow melts, feeding rivers, irrigation, drinking water, then down drains through sewers, all back to the sea! Everyone, everywhere, affects the ocean!
Dory: Wow! Amazing!
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Finally, you're listening!
Dory: [with a conch shell up to her ear] Yeah, I can hear the ocean!
Jean-Michel Cousteau: [yelling] Arrêtez maintenant! Je ne peux pas travailler comme ça!
[cut to "Please Stand By" screen, with cartoon Cousteau and elevator music]

Jean-Michel Cousteau: [after talking about how human activity is harming coral and making it turn white] In fact, tonight is the one magic night of the year when healthy corals reproduce. There, it is happening!
Marlin, Nemo, Dory: [small pink spheres, actually coral eggs, float through the water] Ooh, oh.
Dory: Look at that!
Nemo: Whoa!
Dory: Amazing!
Marlin: Look at this.
Dory: [swims frantically around to all the coral eggs] Happy birthday, coral. Happy birthday, happy birthday. Happy - happy birthday.
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Incredibly, the corals release their eggs in a single night, so that even the hungriest fish cannot eat them all.
Nemo: [a shot is shown of a coral spewing out its eggs into the water at high speed] What's it doing?
[Marlin covers Nemo's eyes]
Nemo: Dad!
Marlin: When you're a little older, son.

Jean-Michel Cousteau: [concluding] For we are as connected to the planet as the corals are to the algae living within them. And just as we...
Nemo: Algae living inside coral? That's creepy.
Jean-Michel Cousteau: No, it is not!
Nemo: Yeah, it is.
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Isn't.
Nemo: Is.
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Isn't!
Nemo: Is!
Dory: No, it's normal! See, they work together...
Jean-Michel Cousteau: That's...
Dory: Algae are plants that make food for the coral and the corals fertilize the algae.
Marlin: But when there's pollution, the coral can't get enough food from the algae.
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Look! What...?
Nemo: Wow! You guys know a lot about the reef.
Dory: Well, it's not hard. You just have to pay attention and listen.
Jean-Michel Cousteau: [yelling] Then why won't you listen to me?
Dory: Oh, hi! Who are you?
Jean-Michel Cousteau: I am Jean-Michel Cousteau!
[trumpets blare main theme]
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Cut, cut!
[whimpering]
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Cut, cut, cut.
[cut back to his sailboat]
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Upstaged by fish. This would have never happened to Papa.
[looks up]
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Goodbye. I am... Jean-Michel Cousteau.
[trumpets blare, music ends]
Nemo: [after the film] Keep exploring the reef with Jean-Michel Cousteau at oceanfutures.org.

Jean-Michel Cousteau: [about the coral] It has developed an amazing releationship with algae, a tiny plant that lives inside the coral's body. This connection is deli...
[Dory rises up the screen, close to the camera, Cousteau clears his throat]
Jean-Michel Cousteau: This connection is delicate, and the introduction of additional nutrients can upset this balance, leaving the reef at risk.
[Dory pokes her head in again, Cousteau clears his throat]
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Little fish, I'm trying to make a documentary film.
Dory: A film! A film! I've always wanted to be in a film.
Jean-Michel Cousteau: I was just explaining the delicate balance between coral and the algae living within its body.
Dory: [laughing] "Algae living inside the coral's body" Come on! That's creepy.
Jean-Michel Cousteau: No it isn't.
Dory: Yes it is.
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Isn't.
Dory: Is.
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Isn't.
Dory: Is.
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Isn't.
Dory: Whatever.
Jean-Michel Cousteau: No, it is not "whatever". It's true.
Dory: How do you know? Are you a coral?
Jean-Michel Cousteau: I'm Jean-Michel Cousteau!
[trumpets blare, Dory looks confused]
Jean-Michel Cousteau: And I've studied the ocean all my life.
Dory: [French accent] Well, I'm Dory!
[normal voice]
Dory: And I practically live in the ocean!
Jean-Michel Cousteau: Good for you. But now I must continue to make my film. So long, Dory.
Dory: [screen wipe pushes her away] Hey!
